Farrelly & Mitchell have a long-term commitment and responsibility to ESG and climate protection. Prioritising and honouring the principles of the UN SDG’s is core to what we aim to achieve.
Validation of ESG practices increasingly required by ethical investors
Despite the huge surge in ESG investment in recent years, a lack of third-party verification of data remains. Farrelly & Mitchell are primely positioned to address the growing concern and scepticism among some investors surrounding the validity of ESG impact claims. Our highly experienced sustainability & ESG auditing and due diligence teams have the know-how and ability to deep dive into the environmental sustainability and social governance practices of an enterprise, using global benchmarks and standards to substantiate data and impact claims. Our research ensures environment-related risks are taken on board so that the possibility of assets declining in value due to negative environmental impacts is minimised.
Efficient supply chains are a key driver of F&A sustainability
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a number of risks and logistical challenges associated with long and complex supply chains. On the other hand, striving for complete self-sufficiency can be counter-productive with limited environmental benefits due to inherent local challenges (such as access to water for agricultural production). At Farrelly & Mitchell, we believe that a balance in supply chain complexity must be reached to optimise efficiencies and minimise carbon impact.
